Throughout 2018, I worked on a project to interpret the history of African American Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees at the C&O Canal. In short, these young men re-built what would become C&O Canal NHP from Georgetown to Great Falls, about twenty-two miles, and would have re-built the entire corridor if not for WWII.
The primary outcome of this work was a NPS Special History Study, a research document balancing interpretation with documentation for future reference by NPS staff. It won some awards. It led to some exhibit installations. I am very proud and humbled.
